There have to be some guys moving down for other guys to move up and overtake them in the draft rankings. Off the top of my head, I'd say Griffin Conine, Brice Turang, Luken Baker, Tim Cate, Tristan Pompey and Brady Singer (he's still highly rated) have fallen in the rankings to some degree.
Mason Denaburg seems like the big one among the highly rated prep arms that have fallen.
Denaburg may be more likely to go to school now. Was Baker ever THAT high? I don't remember seeing him go before our pick at any point this year. Singer has dropped, but is he even dropping outside the top 10?
I think there's a good chance a top 10-12 talent is available to us at 24. Just don't know who.
Oh, I was just stating draft prospects whose stock has fallen. Singer should still go in the top 10. I don't know who will be available to the Cubs at 24, but yeah we should be getting a good player. There really isn't much separation between 13-40 in the draft rankings in my opinion.
If he falls all the way to 24 I could see the Cubs taking RHP Logan Gilbert
. He seems to be flying under the radar a little bit.
He'd make me happy enough, I guess. I'm trying to play process of elimination, on who might be there for us.
These guys will be off the board for sure, by what I can tell.....
RHCP- Mize, Singer
LHCP- McClanahan, Rolison
HSRHP- Stewart, Winn, Wilcox, Rodriguez
HSLHP- Liberatore, Weathers,
CPP- Madrigal, Swaggerty, Bart, India, Bohm, Larnach
HSPP- Kelenic, Gorman, Scott, Turang, Naylor
That's 21 guys I think are extremely likely, most being locks, to be off the board, by the time we pick.
The non locks being Rolison, Larnach, Scott, and Naylor?
The guys I'm NOT mentioning as LOCKS to go before we pick are Rocker, Hankins, Vasil, and Casas.
So, if those guys ARE off the board and we go with a college guy, what's there for us?
Position Players- Eierman, Jenista, Walker, Hoerner, Watson, which seems to be reaches, in most of these instances.
College Pitchers- Kowar, Gilbert, Beck, Hjelle, Knight
Again, this is only if we DO take a college guy in the 1st. Which, I guess think I'd prefer going the HS route, after looking this over.....
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.
